Instructions

    Preheat the oven to 350F [180C]. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

    Soak the prune bits in the water for 5 minutes, then blend until smooth.

    In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the eggs together with the butter and cheese until creamy.

    In a bowl, mix the coconut flour, instant coffee granules, prune puree, and baking powder together. Fold into the egg mixture. Let rest for about 10 minutes.

    Spread the coconut flakes on a plate. With moistened hands (to prevent the mixture from sticking), form into 12 small balls. Roll the balls in the coconut until completely covered. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the coconut is lightly browned. Once cool, store energy balls in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze.
